    11 Best College Prep Public High Schools in Alabama

    High School Junior: The extracurricular activities and flexibility of class schedules are really what make Florence High School a phenomonal school conducive to an exciting yet educational four years. Florence High School is extremely diverse and this allows for multicultarism to thrive and educate students. The diversity also allows for a wide variety of clubs and organizations to be present. Students come from all different walks of life and because of this you see a wide variety of social clubs from high school sororities to GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) and clubs for learning sign language and multiculturalism. Students come from all over the shoals to participate in Florence Academy of Fine Arts; however, any FHS student can take these classes and participate in the various programs. The Shoals area has a deep musical history and the arts are kept alive through this school! Athletics are very prominate and Florence does very well when it comes to sports. Some of my greatest experiences in High School have been from my participation in academic and service oriented clubs like Science Olympiad and Key Club. Florence has allowed me to pursue a variety of different interests and through these experiences I have met people from Florence, the Shoals, and all over the state. I have homed my interests and skills and I now have a better idea of what I wish to do in college and beyond. I am thankful for the opportunities that Florence provides its students with and the interesting background that a public school in Alabama is able to take advantage of!
